Position Description

Why be a Campus Director?

As the CD, you are LE’s link to potential volunteers, donors, and many of LE’s other stakeholders. You must be willing to recruit, select and train volunteers and also give top priority to fundraising on your campus. As well as your responsibility and commitment to your campus, you have to be ready to help other CDs with interviewing and events where necessary and to work as part of a team of CDs which will support each other throughout the year.

Doing your job well requires more than just getting your job done. It involves having your heart in it, owning your responsibilities, anticipating problems, sharing your experiences with your volunteers and passing on the essence of LE to the future of LE. 

The position of Campus Director does not require any past volunteer experience with Learning Enterprises. 

  • Plan for the year.  Compile a ‘Campus Plan’ for the year stating your aims and objectives in terms of recruitment, fundraising, training and interviewing and also lay out how you expect to make your goals and targets become a reality.
  • Work as part of a team of Campus Directors. Maintain weekly contact with the Executive Board and other CDs to share ideas on recruitment, interviewing, training and fundraising. Help out with events taking place in nearby universities and help with recruiting, interviewing or training applicants who are not from their campus where necessary and appropriate.
  • Recruit talent. In cooperation with the executive staff and fellow CDs, each CD will aim to attract an appropriate number of applicants as agreed upon in the Campus Plan. While making use of standard recruitment and advertisement material, CDs will also think creatively about the use of more tailored material to advertise LE and its mission. Host several information sessions.
  • Interview talent. CDs will consider and interview all applicants promptly. After each interview the CD will write an evaluation of interviewed candidates for the Program Directors (PD) for second-round interviews. 
  • Train and support volunteers. CDs will carry out a full and proper training of volunteers, using their training ideas while still adhering to the basic training guidelines which will be explained by the Executive Board. Outside of formal training you must also be available to answer your volunteer’s questions, emails and generally be of support to your volunteers.
  • Fundraise. Fundraising is vital to Learning Enterprises; as a staff member, you will be expected to support LE’s fundraising campaigns both on and off-campus. The method of fundraising is entirely flexible and the Executive Board and other CDs will support you in your efforts.
